Spranger weighs in on Saul Ewing’s start up initiative

Law firm starts initiative to support emerging tech, life sciences clients

The Philadelphia Business Journal published a feature on Saul Ewing’s new RAMP™ initiative (Resources, Access and Mentoring Program), which provides startup companies in the technology and life sciences spaces the practical support to move their businesses forward.

The program will make use of Saul Ewing’s new space within the Drexel Innovation Neighborhood, where attorneys will hold office hours to engage with existing and prospective clients and discuss their legal needs. Additionally, the firm has engaged an Investor in Residence to provide value-added support and guidance to participating companies.  

Debbie Spranger, Chair of the firm’s Business and Finance practice and leader of the RAMP initiative, said, “Of course, this is an investment in the long-term success of these entrepreneurial companies. But it is also an investment in the local ecosystem. Start-up companies are the life-blood of an innovation economy. By supporting them, we create more and better opportunities for our larger company and angel/venture/private equity clients who are looking  for the next ‘big thing.’ And it draws additional investment dollars to the Greater Philadelphia market, which benefits everyone.”
